The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

In line 247, the narrator explains that he is burdened by the sea and the sky: “For the sky and the sea, and the sea and the sky / Lay like a load on my weary eye” (Pg. 19) Why does Coleridge reverse the order of “sky” and “sea” in the second part of the line?
